  • 1 cup almond milk (236ml)
  • 2 cups cream of coconut (475ml)
  • 1-2 cups vegan condensed coconut milk (236ml-475ml) see notes for the link
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon star anise extract optional
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice
  • 1-2 cups barbancourt rhum (236ml-475ml) or rum flavouring see notes


  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend into a smooth consistency.
  • Pour the drink into a bottle and refrigerate/serve accordingly.


  • To keep the recipe vegan, you will want to use my Vegan Condensed milk. The recipe should be enough to cover this one.
  • If you can't get hold of cream of coconut, chill 2 cans of FULL FAT coconut milk (must be full fat or it won't work) in the refrigerator and scoop it out and mix it with ¾ cup maple syrup/agave.
  • Cremas is an extremely sweet drink, I only used about about 1 cup or less of condensed milk because I don't have a insatiable hunger for sweet drinks.
  • You may want to do a taste test for sweetness and alcohol content as you go along. Start with half the amount stated and adjust to YOUR preference.
  • If you are using rum flavouring/essence, you will need about 1-3 tbsp, again test taste as you go along.
  • Keep you cremas refrigerated at all times, if you are using alcohol it should help to preserve it for some weeks.
  • Non alcoholic cremas will have a short life span of about a week (we finish ours in less than a week).
